    The First German Philosopher: The Mysticism of Jakob Böhme as Interpreted by Hegel.Cecilia Muratori - 2016 - Springer Verlag.
    This book investigates Hegel’s interpretation of the mystical philosophy of Jakob Böhme, considered in the context of the reception of Böhme in the 18th and 19th centuries, and of Hegel’s own understanding of mysticism as a philosophical approach. The three sections of this book present: the historical background of Hegel’s encounter with Böhme’s writings; the development of two different conceptions of mysticism in Hegel’s work; and finally Hegel’s approach to Böhme’s philosophy, discussing in detail the references to Böhme both in (...)

    Early Modern Philosophers and the Renaissance Legacy.Gianni Paganini & Cecilia Muratori (eds.) - 2016 - Springer Verlag.
    When does Renaissance philosophy end, and Early Modern philosophy begin? Do Renaissance philosophers have something in common, which distinguishes them from Early Modern philosophers? And ultimately, what defines the modernity of the Early Modern period, and what role did the Renaissance play in shaping it? The answers to these questions are not just chronological. This book challenges traditional constructions of these periods, which partly reflect the prejudice that the Renaissance was a literary and artistic phenomenon, rather than a philosophical phase. (...)

    From Animal Bodies To Human Souls: Aristotelian Animals in Della Porta’s Physiognomics.Cecilia Muratori - 2017 - Early Science and Medicine 22 (1):1-23.
    This article analyses the role that animals play in Della Porta’s method of physiognomics. It claims that Della Porta created his own, original, method by appropriating, and yet selectively adapting Aristotelian and pseudo-Aristotelian sources. This has not been adequately reconstructed before in previous studies on Della Porta. I trace, in two steps, the conceptual trajectory of Della Porta’s physiognomics, from human psychology to animal psychology, and ultimately from psychology to ethics. In the first step, I show how Della Porta substantially (...)

    ‘In Human Shape to Become the Very Beast!’ – Henry More on Animals.Cecilia Muratori - 2017 - British Journal for the History of Philosophy 25 (5):897-915.
    Animals – both tame and wild, as metaphors and as real presences – populate many of More’s works. In this essay, I show that, from the early Psychodia Platonica to the Divine Dialogues, animals are at the core of key metaphysical issues that reverberate on the levels of psychology and ethics. In particular I discuss three main aspects: the role of animals in More’s critique of atheism, both as safeguard for the body–soul interaction and as proofs of divine providence in (...)

    Renaissance and Early Modern Philosophy: Mobile Frontiers and Established Outposts.Gianni Paganini & Cecilia Muratori - 2016 - In Gianni Paganini & Cecilia Muratori (eds.), Early Modern Philosophers and the Renaissance Legacy. Springer Verlag.
    Difficulties with periodization are often symptoms of internal diseases affecting the history of philosophy. Renaissance scholars and historians of early modern philosophy represent two scholarly communities that do not communicate with each other, as if an abrupt change of scenery had taken place from the sixteenth to the seventeenth century, from the age of Campanella to the age of Descartes. The assumption of an arbitrary division between these two periods continues to have unfortunate effects on the study of the history (...)
